PUB-WM-010 2015

Dear Migratory Game Bird Hunter,
Wow! Sixty years of continental duck surveys and 2015 produces the
highest estimate ever at 49.5 million ducks. Expectations are high
and opening day is drawing near. Check your waders, practice your
shooting and duck ID and get out scouting.
A few season highlights:
•We are in year two of a three-year experimental early teal season.
Remember to show restraint and don’t shoot until you are 100% sure
of the species of duck in flight. As required by federal rules, we will
be monitoring hunters and the results will determine if the season
becomes operational.
•Similar to last year, the shifting calendar provides a duck season that
is later than average.
•Shooting hours on opening day of duck season this year will begin at
a half hour before sunrise instead of 9 a.m. While the 9 a.m. opener
was supported by hunters in the past, we have observed a shift in
support toward the early start on opening day.
•Overall hunting season dates are similar to last year, but we have
shortened the mid-season split on the Mississippi River Zone in
response to public comments that the prior 12-day split was too long.
The seven-day split still provides a temporary closure to improve
the hunting experience during the October 17 “second opener” by
allowing a build-up of ducks migrating into the river.
•I appreciated our hunters’ passion and involvement during the
process of setting waterfowl seasons. Given Wisconsin’s diverse
waterfowling venues, hunters have a wide range of preferences. The
season structure is a compromise among those preferences.
A few reminders to improve your waterfowl hunting experience:
•Fall water conditions, weather patterns and time spent scouting are
most important to your hunting success.
•The best waterfowl hunters are those who spend time scouting
locations before and during the season. Our surveys show that hunters
who scouted twice before the duck season harvested about three times
more ducks than those who did not scout.
•Please look at these websites and spend time in the marsh to improve
your duck ID: and http://
I look forward to seeing you in the marsh this fall.
